We have always done the regatta as a for fun activity. We use foam
insulation board cut in the appropriate width for our boats then decorate
with masts & sails, etc. The boys stand at one end of the raingutters
and blow the boats down to the other end. First one to the end, wins.
The CS Leader How -to book offers suggestions as does the book on
pinewood & space derbies and regattas sold by BSA Nat'l Supply. I have
tried using the BSA supply regatta , but have not been impressed with
what they have to offer. Good luck.
